    how the fuck did he walk away from that so casually?

      He held his shape well on the fall – you can die off a 1m fall if you land on your head, and a few years back someone jumped off Van Staden’s Bridge and lived (it was attempted suicide). It’s all in the landing.

      He also didn’t gather much speed while he was sliding on the rock.

    It’s probably happened before!!??

    “Jules lines is Britain’s best free-solo climber. For those who follow the climbing scene closely, the stories of his death defying solos of hard extremes in the mountains have given him a reputation as a ‘dark horse’ figure in climbing.”

    Definitely on of the darker horses of UK Climbing. His trilogy of E7s and an E8 on the Shelterstone in the Cairgroms represent about as hard bold trad climbing on remote mountains as you can get

    Not to mention his hard DWS expoits too.
